Planetary Transits for November 1st – November 14th
(Interpretations based on the Systems’ Approach to Vedic Astrology)
Note: These astrological reports are published on the 1st and 15th of each month. This should be helpful for planning the month – and coincides with the movement of the Sun into each sign/house around the middle of every month.
Notable Transits: Sun remains in its debilitation sign, Libra, until Nov. 16th. Mercury, in Scorpio, is under the tenth aspect of Saturn, Nov. 7 – 13. Venus is in her debilitation sign, Virgo, until Nov. 29th. Rahu and Ketu remain stationary in the 00-degree range until Nov. 28th. (See below for the impact for each rising sign.)
Transits for the next two weeks:
Sun transits its debilitation sign, Libra, from 14:19 to 29:25°. Sun is debilitated until November 16th and is weak until Nov. 21st. Leaders, presidents, physicians, administrators and government officials should expect less and get extra rest.
Moon is waning/waxing and transits Taurus through Sagittarius. The new Moon is in Libra, Nov. 13th at 3:27 a.m. CST. Moon, in Scorpio, is in its debilitation sign, Nov. 13 –14. Watch your emotional state and be vigilant in crowds and around volatile persons.
Mars transits Libra, from 19:30 to 30:00°. This connects the military, police, surgeons, executives and property matters with law, women, and the fine, healing or healing arts.
Mercury transits out of Libra and into Scorpio, Nov. 6th at 4:55 a.m. CST. Mercury is under the 10th aspect of Saturn, Nov. 7 – 13. Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons should be careful and patient, as Saturn rules their eighth, sixth, and twelfth (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Jupiter transits Aries, from 16:35 to 14:35°. This should be favorable for law, banking, religion, and education. Jupiter is in retrograde motion, until Dec. 30th. Taurus, Cancer and Capricorn rising sign persons should be careful and patient whenever Jupiter is within five degrees of their rising sign degree — or any planet — by aspect or conjunction, in any sign or house; as Jupiter rules their eighth, sixth and twelfth (inauspicious) houses, respectively.
Jupiter is in Aries through April 30, 2024. This connects law and justice with Mars. Expect courageous (without fear or favor) legal decisions through February 2024. Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio rising sign persons, however, should be careful and patient — as Jupiter is transiting their twelfth, eighth, and sixth (inauspicious) houses, respectively, through April 2024.
Venus transits out of Leo and into its debilitation sign, Virgo, Nov. 2nd at 6:43 p.m., CDT. Venus is debilitated until Nov. 29th. Be patient with women, finance, romance, luxuries, weather, transportation, entertainment, and the fine, healing or performing arts.
Saturn transits its own sign, Aquarius, from 06:20 to 06:26° This represents discussions relative to the masses, the elderly, the poor and needy, agriculture, manufacturing, and “things of the earth”, along with the oil, gas and minerals industries. (Gas prices decline; the government announces 2024 increases for social security recipients.) Saturn comes out of its retrograde motion on Nov. 4th at 2:03 a.m. CDT.
Rahu and Ketu transit Aries and Libra, respectively, from 00:39 to 00:25°. Rahu and Ketu are stationary in the zero-degree range Sept. 14 – Nov. 28. This prolonged (11-week) transit generally represents worldwide stress. This is especially true for those persons with rising signs between 0 and 2 degrees, or with planets between 0 and 2 degrees in the odd signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius) – and/or for those with rising signs between 28 and 30 degrees, or with planets between 28 and 30 degrees in the even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces). For these persons it is imperative to exercise care and patience for the duration.
The Impact of the Transit Planets for each “Rising Sign” (not “Sun Sign”)
Note: Transit planets should also be seen with reference to the position of the planets in your personal horoscope. In some cases, these will alter the predicted events.
ARIES: Continue to focus on partnerships, joint ventures, and/or life away from your birth place through Nov. 15th. These are likely associated with pets, children, education and investments. Connect with authority figures and large, medical, spiritual or government organizations. Be vigilant, however, with relationships in general through November. These may also be vulnerable to debts, disputes, health, or legal issues. Your best bet may be to focus on your spiritual or religious connections and/or long-distance travel through next April. Education, teaching, publishing and advisory roles, along with gurus or children, are also forefront for the next six months. Moreover, Saturn supports income and friendships through February 2025. Gain from hard work; be of physical service to others; and consider agriculture, manufacturing, sustainable living, etc.
TAURUS: Continue to exercise patience with property, vehicles, home life, authority figures and large organizations through mid-Nov. These may be vulnerable to debts, disputes, health or legal issues. There may also be similar issues with pets, children, education and investments through Nov. Your best bet may be to study or invest in design, luxuries, entertainment, and the fine, healing or performing arts. Be patient with losses, expenses, separations, insomnia, intimacy, and/or long-distance places through Nov. 15th. Take care with marriage, windfalls, inheritance and financial settlements through next April. On the other hand, there should be protection for your work and professional life – through Feb. 2025 – as Saturn blesses your career with a “Sasha Yoga*”, which is favorable for leadership and humanitarian accomplishments. (*This also supports service to the masses, patience, hard work, practicality, and a position of authority.)
GEMINI: Expect considerable duality. On the one hand, you can favorably connect property, vehicles, home life, entrepreneurial activities, authority figures and large organizations with pets, children, education and investments through Nov. 5th. On the other hand, these may be vulnerable to debts, disputes, health or legal issues, Nov 5 – 26. Lay low and connect your home life with women, art, music, design, luxuries and the healing arts. There is some support for income and friendships through Nov.15th – but due to the weakness of Venus, maybe to a lesser extent. Your best bet through next April is to focus on marriage, partnerships, joint ventures, relocation or life abroad. Fortunately, Saturn, ruling your ninth house of good fortune, may well bless you with support from father and religious figures and long-distance travel from now through February 2025.
CANCER: Focus on writing, business, finance and communications through Nov. 5th. Connect your career, authority figures and large organizations with property, vehicles, fixed assets, home life and your executive organizing skills through Nov. 15th. You can also work out of your home on independent projects, Nov. 6 – 29. Be patient, however, as there may be some underlying weakness with these significations. Be vigilant with communications and entrepreneurial ventures Nov. 7 – 13. These are likely vulnerable to setbacks. In terms of your career, focus on education, teaching, publishing and advisory roles through next April. You can also consider professional opportunities with law, medicine, finance, social work, and psychology. Be of service to others and be patient to manage stress in the workplace. With Saturn in its own sign, Aquarius, through February 2025, you may do well to focus on research, languages, and/or the Vedic sciences. For some of you, there may also be a marriage, windfall, inheritance, legal or insurance settlement.
LEO: Focus on communications and independent projects through Nov. 16th. These may also involve father or religious figures, property, executive matters, or long-distance travel. Work out of your home on writing, finances, intellectual property and family matters, Nov. 8 – 26. Be patient with women, luxuries, romance, entertainment and the fine, healing or performing arts through Nov. Connect children, education, investments and spiritual pursuits with father and religious figures and/or long-distance travel through next April. It is also a good time to learn, teach, publish and advise. Sage Parashara says, “When the ruler of the fifth house is in the ninth house, the person has honor, fame and fortune through authorship”. Moreover, Saturn, in Aquarius, confers a favorable Sasha Yoga* in your house of partnerships, joint ventures and life abroad through February 2025. (*This supports service to the masses, patience, hard work, perseverance, and a position of authority.)
VIRGO: Be patient with expenses, separations or institutional life, and/or setbacks with your status or family life through Nov. 15th. On the other hand, there may be success with ashrams, retreats, institutions, ashrams or foreign lands. Speak up as an authority figure and connect with large, medical, spiritual or government organizations. Focus on communications and entrepreneurial ventures, Nov. 6 – 26. Get a haircut, buy new clothes and consider a health spa through November. Women, luxuries, romance, entertainment and the fine, healing, and performing arts are likely forefront during this time. Long-term, be patient with property, vehicles, fixed assets and home life through next April. However, these may also be the source of a windfall, inheritance, legal or insurance settlement. Saturn, in Aquarius, may also add protective covering with debts, disputes, health or legal issues, through February 2025.
LIBRA: Focus on income, friendships, leadership, authority figures and large organizations through mid-Nov. Partnerships, and joint ventures also remain forefront during this time. Expect less, however, and be patient to manage losses, expenses and separations – relative to income, friendships, and relationships in general. Your best bet may be to consider a retreat, ashram, relocation, educational or institutional situation, or foreign land through Nov. Long-term, connect communications and independent projects with partnerships and/or life abroad through next April. These should do well — whenever Mars in transit is in good strength and in favorable houses. Additionally, Saturn supports success with children, education, investments and spiritual pursuits through February 2025.
SCORPIO: Be patient for a few days with income and friendships – and then expect improvement. Your work, however, remains subject to losses, expenses and separations through mid-Nov. Alternatively, connect your career with retreats, institutions or foreign lands. Watch your health and finances and do your best to avoid debts and disputes. There may be both gains and losses relative to women, design, romance, luxuries, medicine, and the fine, healing or performing arts through Nov. It may also be helpful to be careful with your wealth, status, speech and family life through next April – to manage debts or disputes. Your best bet may be to focus on law, medicine, finance/accounting, social work, or psychology. Fortunately, Saturn in your fourth house blesses you with a Sasha Yoga*, which should add protective covering relative to property, vehicles, fixed assets and home life — through February 2025. (*This also supports service to the masses, patience, hard work, perseverance, and a position of authority.)
SAGITTARIUS: Expect gains at work for a few more days, and then be patient with losses, expenses and separations — Nov. 6 – 26. Alternatively, connect your career with retreats, ashrams, institutions or foreign lands. There may be income and friendships relative to children, education, investments, property, authority figures or large organizations through mid-month. Jupiter, in Aries, indicates spiritual pursuits — and connects you with children, education, and investments through next April. This should also give you the mental energy to start new projects — and to keep you moving in the right direction. Learn, teach, publish, and advise. Saturn, in Aquarius, absolutely supports communications and entrepreneurial success through February 2025.
CAPRICORN: Continue to lead at work and focus on research and ancient knowledge. Be patient, however, with work-related setbacks through mid-month. On the other hand, there may be income and friendships related to writing, business, finance, technology, and communications, Nov. 6 – 26. These may involve long-distance travel or a connection with father or religious figures. There may also be some good fortune with your career through the end of the month. Jupiter, in Aries through next April, may involve retreats, ashrams, expenses, separations, relocation or foreign lands — relative to property, vehicles, and home life. Fortunately, Saturn in its own sign Aquarius should add protective covering to your wealth, status, and family life through February 2025. This also supports leadership, successful industrial activities and service to the masses.
AQUARIUS: Expect mixed results. On the one hand, there may be good fortune with partnerships, joint ventures, father and religious or authority figures, and life abroad — along with successful entrepreneurial ventures. On the other hand, this may all be a house of cards — vulnerable to setbacks and obstructions. Your best bet may be to focus on writing, business, research, communications, or ancient knowledge at work– while remaining vigilant, Nov. 6 – 26. Fortunately, you should be able to count on income and friendships through next April. Moreover, Saturn, in Aquarius, confers a Sasha Yoga* on you, which is favorable for your health and reputation through February 2025. (*This also supports leadership, service to the masses, patience, hard work, perseverance, and success relative to agriculture, industrial and manufacturing activities.)
PISCES: Be vigilant with your health and finances — and to avoid conflicts through mid-month. Relationships may also be vulnerable. Normally there would be improvement after Nov. 5th when Mercury moves into your favorable ninth house, however, this year Mercury comes under the tenth aspect of the unfavorable Saturn, Nov. 7 – 13. This may bring losses, expenses or separations. Alternatively, for some of you there may be a marriage, inheritance, windfall or financial settlement during November. Fortunately, Jupiter, in Aries through next April, should contribute to your career — whenever its landlord, Mars, is in good strength and in favorable houses. Speak up as guru; learn, teach, publish, and advise. Saturn, in Aquarius, should also be helpful with retreats, ashrams, foreign lands, and institutions – and should add protective covering against expenses, separations or hospitalization, through February 2025.
Note: Planetary remedies add protective covering to life. Strengthen your favorable planets (with color and gemstone therapy and/or the mystical pendant known as the kavach: (https://astroview.com/mystical-pendant/) and do “Bhoota” and “Deva” “Yagyas” (charities and chants) for the planets that cause adverse effects in your horoscope.
